Happy Valentine's Day Gorgeous!

Beautiful You,
Please make a tradition, whether you are in a relationship or not, to take time to cultivate the most loving act of kindness and cultivate the most important relationship of all. Love yourself. Please remember it all starts and ends with self love.
In the advent of Youtube tutorials for everything beauty related, I cannot stress enough how important self love is. Here are some ways to begin:
1. Begin with writing in a journal that is kept private, if you don't feel comfortable writing, start by drawing, singing, crying, something to let your emotions release.
2. Give yourself some alone time. Spend time taking care of you, if only for one half hour. Manicure, pedicure, bubble bath, listening to music or reading a book with a cup of tea or glass of wine anyone?
3. Don't get caught up in hype. You can really do mental damage by falling into the trap the possessions or positions will make you happy. This is what advertising executives are paid to do. They want you to feel unhappy enough to buy their "miracle" products when all you need to do is nurture your soul. God made you for you, there is no one else like you, and there is nothing to big for you and God.
4. Forgive yourself and others. It's not easy to let go of old wounds, but the devil praises you for every negative thought you have about yourself and others. Life is too short, we all make mistakes. Forgive!
5. Don't believe the images you see of others. Focus on the things you like about yourself. Smile, humour, feet, bum, laugh or whatever and start thinking about how that trait helps others and you and soon you will have a list of things about yourself and you can work toward a goal of achieving greater things.
6. Love yourself!

Stay beautiful,
